Fifth graders from East Broadway Elementary School recently participated in Dancing Classrooms Long Island's Nassau Spring Colors of the Rainbow Team Match. With the support of Dancing Classrooms Teaching Artist Eileen Clarke and fifth grade teachers Katie Winkelman and Brittany Neligan, the students took home the gold during the competition.
The event featured seven schools from Nassau County and encouraged students who participated in the ten-week, 20 lesson residency program during the school year to put their newfound skills to test. Each school was represented with a color as students danced with partners and were judged on dances such as the Merengue, Tango, Foxtrot, Rumba and more.
Congratulations to all the students on their great accomplishment!
